Single Spindle 5C Indexer
COLLET SIZE | MAX TORQUE
5C 88 ft-lb
Note: Motor cover size and shape varies with motor type.
The VH-5C is perfect for small parts machining by utilizing standard 5C collets from 1/64" up to an 1-1/8". Or easily spin on a 6", 3-jaw chuck to the 2-3/16" threaded spindle nose for holding larger parts. The VH-5C comes standard with a manual lever handle and draw tube to close the collets. We also offer an optional air collet closer for greater holding force. Just flip a lever and the collet clamps your part securely, consistently all with less operator fatigue.
The Index Designs VH-5C head is built from top-quality components and has been engineered to provide robust operation without sacrificing accuracy. The gear set uses throated helix gears for greater contact area to reduce gear wear and absorb shock loads which in turn helps maximize gear life and maintain accuracy over a longer period of time. A dual adjustment design provides optimal gear mesh to further enhance the performance and accuracy of the gear set. AC brushless motors used in the 5C eliminate maintenance associated with brush replacement.
